Bluebonnet Library Completes Second Phase of Renovations

Posted by Colleen Egan in News

BCI was once again on the scene at The East Baton Rouge Parish Library (EBRPL). This time, BCI worked with Modern Library Furniture dealer, Arnold & Associates Interiors Inc., to renovate Bluebonnet Library, which is one of thirteen library branches in the EBRPL. The concept was to inspire teens through interactive furniture items and bright colors throughout the space.

BCI provided INFORM shelving for the project. Below are a few product images of the shelving used in the renovation:

In a previous renovation at Bluebonnet Library, BCI provided INFORM Desk Systems for the Adult Section, and INFORM Desk Systems for Children’s Area.

Renovations to the Bluebonnet library started in 2015, but thanks to an 11.1-mill property tax dedicated to the library, there are more renovations to come for the EBRPL. Several libraries in the system are slated for upgrades over the next several years. Teen rooms and meeting spaces are the main concentrations for such renovations.

Saline, MI Middle School Library Chooses BCI Modern Library Furniture

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

The Saline Middle School, located in Saline, MI serves students in grades 6 thru 8. Along with other renovations to the building, the library was also redesigned.

Working with our BCI Modern Library Furniture dealer, Great Lakes Furniture Supply, the INFORM Desk System was included in the project.

The information desk in many libraries is the first point of contact. Having an aesthetically pleasing information desk in a library entry sets the stage for the experience.

BCI Modern Library Furniture Looking Back on this Throwback Thursday!

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

We are throwing it back again! Here’s a project a few years back we did with Montclair State University, located in Montclair, NJ. A new 275,000 square feet academic building was constructed by The SLAM Collaborative architectural group. BCI Modern Library Furniture was chosen to supply the furnishings for the CRC Library of the University’s new building. A customized solution was created by BCI’s team of designers that provided the quality and configuration, while keeping within their budget.

BCI’s 60/30 double-faced shelving system finished in black steel with clean, rich cherry end panels was chosen to accommodate the center’s resource materials.

Below are actual photo’s from the project —
